In the Pulse attack, we knew it was jihad when devout Muslim Omar Mateen called 911 in the middle of his mass slaughter and pledged his allegiance to the Islamic State. But it didn’t matter. It never does.
Little girls singing and dancing with pure joy at a pop concert one moment, then targeted for death with a bomb designed for maximum pain, suffering and death. Nails, nuts, shrapnel designed to tear into flesh and bone. That didn’t matter. Coworkers and holiday revelers at an office Christmas party in San Bernardino didn’t matter. Moms and dads and their kids celebrating Bastille Day in France didn’t matter. Concertgoers dancing at a music hall in Paris were shot down like dogs, their eyes gouged out, many castrated with their testicles shoved in their mouths, others disemboweled, women were reportedly stabbed in the genitals – and the torture was filmed for Islamic propaganda. That didn’t matter. Children skipping to class at a Jewish day school mowed down by a devout Muslim who filmed it for Islamic purposes didn’t matter. Writers, cartoonists and editors at a French weekly murdered in cold blood didn’t matter.
Instead, those in power in media, in government, in academia, and now their empty-headed prop Joe Biden, weep for the perps and their coreligionists. They loathe those who oppose. Respect the ideology that incites unspeakable savagery, so we are told. Do not hurt their feelings. They decry those of us who fight back. Go quietly, the demand, or we will destroy your name, your reputation, your life.
The West surrendered long ago and until we rise up and fight, it will continue to get worse. Unless we go to war, the sun will set on the West.
“Joe Biden Omits Radical Islam in Statement on Pulse Nightclub Shooting Anniversary,” by Joel B. Pollak, Breitbart, June 12, 2020:
Former Vice President Joe Biden issued a statement Friday to mark the fourth anniversary of the Pulse night club shooting in Orlando, Florida, leaving out the fact that the perpetrator was a radical Islamist loyal to the so-called “Islamic State.”
Omar Mateen, 29, killed 49 people and wounded 68 at the Pulse on June 12, 2016, in what was then the worst mass shooting event in American history. He pledged his allegiance to ISIS “caliph” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in the course of the attack.
However, the left has since obscured the motives of the murder. The LGBTQ community has claimed it was a homophobic hate crime, even though investigators concluded Mateen had not known the Pulse was a gay night club when he targeted it.
President Barack Obama called it an act of “terror” at the time, but the media and the Democrats obscured the connection to ISIS, in keeping with the standards of political correctness encouraged by the Obama administration for eight years.
Biden’s statement was in keeping with that practice of obscuring the role of the Islamic State, or radical Islam in general. Instead, he attempted to link the Pulse shooting with shootings by white supremacists, and gun violence in general, blaming Republicans:
Four years ago, as members of the LGBTQ+ community were gathered together for “Latin Night” at Pulse nightclub during Pride Month, a terrorist armed with a semi-automatic rifle opened fire. He killed 49 innocent people and injured many more — at the time, the deadliest mass shooting by a single gunman. And still today, it remains the deadliest attack on the LGBTQ+ community in American history.
Sadly, all these years later, terrorism, mass shootings, and hate crimes continue to rip apart our American communities. Our places of worship have been attacked, Hispanics have been targeted in places like El Paso, the death toll from mass shootings continues to mount, and LGBTQ+ people, particularly transgender women of color, are disproportionately targeted by violence…..
